Mazda Motor Corporation unveiled a rotary-powered sports car, the Mazda RX-VISION concept, at the Tokyo Motor Show today.

The rotary engine is said to be a symbol of the company’s “never-stop-challenging” spirit.

RX-VISION represents a vision of the future that Mazda hopes to one day make into reality; a front-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car with exquisite design-based proportions only Mazda could envision, and powered by the next-generation rotary engine indicating that a perseverance with rotary power still exists.

Rotary engines feature a unique construction, generating power through the rotational motion of a triangular rotor.

Overcoming numerous technical difficulties, Mazda commercialised the rotary engine, fitting it in the Cosmo Sport (known as Mazda 110S overseas) in 1967.

As the only car maker to make the rotary engine in significant numbers, Mazda continued efforts to improve power output, fuel economy and durability, and in 1991 took overall victory at 24 Hours of Le Mans with a rotary engine-powered race car.

Over the years, the rotary engine has come to symbolise Mazda’s tireless efforts in the face of difficult challenges.

While production is currently on hold, Mazda has never stopped research and development efforts of the rotary engine.

The next rotary engine has been nick-named SKYACTIV-R, expressing the company’s determination to take on challenges with convention-defying aspirations and the latest technology with a gimmicky name.

Japan's Tokyo Motor Show is open to the public from Friday 30th October through Sunday 8th November, 2015.
